While staring at some fiddlehead ferns at Whole Foods earlier this week, my mind drifted off to last year's inaugural Iron Fork, at which Zola chef Deb Paquette bested four culinary competitors in Battle Fiddlehead Fern, and I couldn't help wondering who would take up the challenge this year.

Wait no longer! The date is set and the chefs are ready!

Iron Fork 2009 kicks off at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 6 at the Country Music Hall of Fame with the following fearless contenders:

Tandy Wilson of City House

Jeremy Barlow of Tayst

Guerry McComas of Yellow Porch

Bart Pickens of Saffire

Jason Love of Ombi

Whole Foods Market will select and provide a secret ingredient and a pantry of supplies, and the chefs will have an hour to concoct a recipe. During that time, guests can watch the spatula-to-spatula combat, sample foods from local restaurants or hang out in the Blue Moon Beer Garden with hosts Woody and Jim from 107.5 FM.

Tickets are available before the event for $30 or $40 at the door. (Last year the event sold out, so plan ahead.) A portion of proceeds will benefit St. Luke's Community House.

Meanwhile, who wants to place bets on the secret ingredient?
